I’m sorry I’m posting just a tad late!!!
It is now the beginning of week 6… which means we have 10 days until innocence is slaughtered out of greed once again.
This last weeks challenge was to send me as many postcards as you possibly could, so that when I went to draw the winner postcard, you had several chances of winning!
Send me all the postcards/letters that you can possibly write! The more letters and postcards you guys send me… the more chances you have of winning this next week’s drawing! Plus we are getting much closer to our deadline… and I know you all want to make a statement!
Prizes include: 1. A Shell from Taiji’s Cove 2. A Taiji Dolphin wrist band 3. A secret prize (big!)!
Well I threw all the cards and letters into a bag and we drew the winner! Congratulations Erin R. from New York, you’ve won:
A Shell from Taiji’s cove
A Taiji Dolphin wristband (Cove Guardian Steven Severson made them)
And the secret prize! Which is a movie Sea Shepherd is selling right now called “At the Edge of the World”.
Your prizes may not arrive till next week because I am still waiting for the wristbands to arrive. Sorry!
So we have ten days till the slaughter begins again! Remember why we are doing this! The dolphin slaughter in Taiji is the most horrific sight I have ever seen. Thousands upon thousands of dolphins have lost their lives in Taiji, Japan. Dolphins and Whales are some of the most intelligent species on this planet. They are self aware, they have families that they travel with life long, they nurse their young, and they have learned to understand us… but we cannot understand them. I could go on and on.
The slaughter of dolphins happens all over Japan, not only Taiji. Taiji is known because of the 2009 movie, The Cove. We feel if we can stop the slaughter in Taiji that the laws will change all over Japan. Then we can move on to help dolphins being slaughtered elsewhere in the world. You have to start somewhere… and like Ric O’Barry said, “If we can’t end it here, in this one little Cove, there is no hope”.
Please send a postcard to: PO Box 853 Edmonds, WA 98020-0853 USA , and urge Japan to stop killing dolphins! For more information about this campaign see this link here.
